Stephen Hill and Santonio Holmes injury update: Fantasy owners hoping he can build off big Week 3

Ron Antonelli

Stephen Hill came out of nowhere in Week 3. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jets receiver Stephen Hill (knee) is listed as probable to face the Titans on Sunday. He was a full participant in practice all week and figures to play without restrictions. Santonio Holmes sat out of practice on Thursday and was limited on Friday and Wednesday to keep his foot injury fresh for Sunday. He's probable and will likely play.

Hill finally busted out in Week 3's win over the Bills, catching three balls for 108 yards and a TD on six targets. He had an 86-yard game against the Patriots and could be trending upward as an asset for the Jets and their passing attack.

Holmes had five catches and 143 yards on 10 targets. He wasn't that wide open on most of those, but he's got a knack for coming down with the ball in traffic. He does have some issues catching the ball and had some egregious drops through the course of the preseason, but Geno Smith has become more comfortable in the pocket and the Jets have been able to protect him enough to allow him to get the ball down the field.

Fantasy impact: Holmes and Hill looked like a legit receiving combo against Buffalo and they could have some success this week on the road. The Titans have some holes in their secondary and as long as the Jets can keep Smith upright, Hill could have another nice day. He's a risky play, though. Holmes is a little safer since he gets more targets and is a WR3 this week.
